the united nations general assembly kicking off cha will be an extremely busy day for both candidates mixing policy and politics. but both the president's foreign policy and his schedule are coming under fire. he will not meet with a single world leader while the united nations is in session. that is a big break with tradition. instead, leaving secretary of the state hillary clinton with a nearly nonstop series of meetings including meeting with the leaders of afghanistan, egypt and pakistan. but the president did take an appearance on the talk show "the view." >> i just have a different vision about how we grow an economy. i think that you grow an economy from the middle out, not from the top down. >> and while the president took a shot at mitt romney over the economy, romney was hammering him over foreign policy. insisting the president's comments about bumps in the road in the middle east were out of line. >> these are developments we do not want to see. >> i want to bring in my fan tak fan takes sick panel, andrea mitchell, jamie rubin and "time" magazine's editor-at-large. good to see a
to address united nations over an hour from now. he is getting the low-key no news drop-by that his team was hoping for? he is getting heat making time for "the view" but not fellow leaders. a big time in missouri. if todd aiken exits the senate race he has to do it by 5:00 p.m. today. if not, it's on to november but the yemt battled congressman shows no sign of dropping out. good morning from new york. it's tuesday, september 25th, 2012. i'm chuck todd live outside of the new york public library, nbc's occasieducation nation su behind me. coming up, i will show you live pictures and monitoring and waiting for bill clinton to introduce mitt romney at his global giving conference and when that happens, we will take it to you live and give you a little bit of mitt romney's remarks. he is presenting an intriguing plan of a public private partnership when it comes to foreign aid. one that my guess is won't get taken out of a partisan lens but ought to win time -- when the time comes for it. >>> first, to my first reads of the morning on the trail monday. a null aggressive mitt romney and he
at the united nations. and, yesterday, prime minister netanyahu reinforced that by frankly praising the president for what he said at the u.n. and talking about how we are in sync. our intelligence and military communities are on the same it timeline with respect to iranian nuclear development. and i think yesterday the president -- prime minister netanyahu drew a line which frankly the president has already drawn not with a cartoon and with that kind of a fdispla but the president has said point blank american policy is not a matter of containment, it is a matter of prevention. they will not have the ability to make a bomb. and the president is prepared to back that up. so, there is no gap here. and once again, mitt romney just as he did when he stepped out early in his comments on libya, inappropriately and wrong, he is once again inappropriately and wrongly characterizing the president's policy. >> john kerry, all fired up for debate preparation, have fun with that. >> thank you. >> have fun playing mitt romney and thank you so much. thanks for being with us today. >> thank you.
, he was at the united nations. he's been hitting the campaign trail hard. he's been dealing with the fallout from the libya attacks. is he finding enough time to even practice for the debates? >> well, you know, craig, to the extent that the command of the issues will make a difference in these debates, you can say he's getting a lot of on the job training, certainly. but to argue your premise a little bit, the president, as far as we know, is, in fact, practicing for those debates. just yesterday, he spent two hours south of the capital, about a mile from here, the democratic national committee headquarters, where we are told, on deep background, that he was, in fact, practicing on those debates. of course, the person who is the mock mitt romney, if you will, john kerry, senator john kerry of massachusetts, he also battle tested. he had his own experience in these debates in 2004. people forget he had a series of epic debates debating a republican governor of massachusetts who challenged him for his senate seat back in 1996. that was bill welles. so it's going to be intense
of the united nations general assembly has put foreign policy front and center. president obama used the ait tack on the u.s. consulate in libya and the death on ambassador stevens to make the case for a broader philosophy regarding the future of the relations between the middle east and the west. >> the events of the last two weeks also speaks to the need for all of us to honestly address the tensions between the west and the arab world that is moving towards democracy. >> while he made clear that the video that sparked the violence was not reflective of american values the president defended the u.s. response and underscored that free speech is essential to prosperity and to peace. >> as president of our country, and commander in chief of our military, i accept that people are going to call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. >> the president then made a pitch to enlist the arab world in combatting extremism. >> a politics based only on anger, one based on dividing the world betweens us and them, not only sets back international cooperation, it ultimat
speeches at the united nations and the clinton global initiative where his republican rival mitt romney also offered some remarks. and in a breathless day of nonstop talk and travel, mr. romney has just arrived for a rousing event in ohio where he's desperately hoping to claw his way out of a substantial polling deficit. there are sign mrs. romney may be coming to his senses after joking at the clinton global initiative that he could do with a little help from a former president. >> if there's one thing we've learned in this election season, by the way, it is that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. all i got to do now is wait a couple days for that bounce to happen. >> right, we'll keep our eye on that. the other bump that romney loves to talk about these days is his attack on the president for saying the middle east would face bumps in the road and romney's suggestion that the president was somehow referring to the deaths of the american ambassador to libya and three other diplomats. a theme that romney reiterated today though in a more muted form. >> syria has w
netanyahu will speak before the united nations general assembly. he will set a clear red line. richardson is the former governor of new mexico and before that, the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. sir, it's good to have you stick around with us. senior israeli official said this to the media as the p.m. travelled to new york for the u.n. meeting. netanyahu will set a clear read line. obama's remarks. obama said iran won't have nuclear weapons. the prime minister will clarify the way in which iran won't have nuclear arms. now, netanyahu is also expected, sir, to warn the time for diplomacy with tehran is not unlimited. where do you think that the white house can go from here especially when we would most americans would prefer to see all this handled on a diplomatic front? >> well, i think the president in his u.n. speech a couple days ago was very clear. we're not going to permit iran to get nuclear weapons. we're going to do it through continued very crippling sanctions with other nations, with europeans diplomatically, pursue negotiations although they're not working. i think recently the pr
's next. >>> and not every day a prime minister brings a cartoon bomb to the united nations. israel literally draws the line on iran's nuclear program. >>> new concerns for diplomat safety in libya as the defense secretary says terrorists planned that deadly attack. >>> first a look at the president and mitt romney's schedule. lighter schedules for them both today. a fund-raising day in particular for both of of them, the president heads to florida. you're watching msnbc. why should our wallets tell us what our favorite color is? every room deserves to look great. and every footstep should tell us we made the right decision. so when we can feel our way through the newest, softest, and most colorful options... ...across every possible price range... ...our budgets won't be picking the style. we will. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. right now get $37 basic installation on all special order carpet. like a squirrel stashes nuts, you may be muddling through allergies. try zyrtec® liquid gels. nothing starts working faster than zyrtec® at relieving your alle
nations in new york with president ahmadinejad has defected. he is seeking asylum in the united states. >>> japan was hit by a typhoon, which was strong enough to overturn vehicles on the island of okinawa. more than 140 people were injured and tens of thousands lost electrical power. >>> and a painting by renoir worth up to $100,000 was bought at a flea market for 7 bucks. an auction of the painting was stopped on saturday. a woman from virginia bought the landscape on the banks of the seine mostly for the frame. the painting was stolen from a museum in baltimore in 1951. it was worth $100,000. >>> and now here's your "first look" at this morning's dish of scrambled politics. mitt romney has an op-ed in the "wall street journal" on foreign policy. mr. romney says allowing iran to build a nuclear weapon is unacceptable. president obama also says the u.s. goal is preventing iran from having an atomic bomb. >>> paul ryan told fox news he and mitt romney want a 20% cut in all income tax rates but ryan failed to provide details. >>> the associated press says if the election were held today
and organized. peter king of new york called on susan rice to resign as u.s. ambassador to the united nations after she initially claimed the attack on the consulate was part of the spontaneous protest after an anti-islamic video. yesterday paul ryan and john mccain slammed the administration's handling of the deadly attack. >> the response was slow, confused, inconsistent. they first said it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist attack if this was one tragic incident that would be a tragedy in itself. the problem is it's part of a bigger picture that the obama foreign policy is unraveling before our eyes on tv screens. >> i think it interferes with the depiction that the administration is trying to convey that al qaeda is on the wane, everything is fine in the middle east. >> you think it's political? >> how else could you trot out our u.n. ambassador to say this was a spon ttaneous demonstrati? >> maybe they thought that at the time? >> on "meet the press" david plouffe was asked by david gregory if politics had anything to do with the administrat
to the united nations, it sent a signal that he's more patient than we had realized. >> well, yes, chuck. i mean there's a different analysis of his speech. one of them is he delayed isr l israel's so-called red line which was in august and then september, oath, before the american elections. now it's seem as delayed until spring or next summer. the first question when you meet him, what do you think? will there be war in iran? they're not sure. would israel attack iran at that time? he suggested that with a red line but he didn't come out and say so everybody's question is will israel attack iran? the fear here is israel may do it without the united states of the america and the sense is that would be a disaster, but one thing israelis do agree on and i believe is the bottom lean is that israel has to be able to do what it needs to protect itself. i think many israelis do agree with thatting chuck. >> all right. that's the view from tel aviv. on sunday, of course, the senior iranian official mocked prime minister netanyahu's bomb drawing. our abc reporter is live in tehran. he's our tehran bur
british prime minister and the united nations special envoy for global education, gordon brown, joins the table this morning. good to have you on board. you may not talk soccer. >> prime minister brown was a little disturbed that we were over here celebrating the suez crisis, the boiling of brits in oil. we are so sorry. >> we've moved on a long time ago. i don't know if you can move on. >> no, it's very hard. let's talk first of all about the crisis in the eurozone. where do we stand today? it's not on the front payable of the page of the papers so much. >> i would say we've stopped being like greece, and we're probably more like japan, and we've got this long-term crisis now. when the european central bank came in to be the lender of last resort, you've got some stalemate for the time being, you can prevent things from going very seriously wrong. the problem with europe is it's going to slow very slowly, if at all. it's got a huge banking problem that's still got to be sorted out. the leverage is far worse than the american banks. we've got a competitiveness issue, and we're losing
at the united nations on wednesday became the highest ranked official to publicly say there was a link between the attack and al qaeda. >> for some time al qaeda and other groups have launched attacks and kidnappings into neighboring countries and they are working with other violent extremists to undermine the democratic transitions under way in north africa as we tragically saw in benghazi. >> republicans are trying to seize on this slow walk by the administration. it seems to be a legitimate gripe. they are trying to make it stick. a group of powerful house republicans from the armed services, foreign affairs, intelligence, judiciary and appropriations committee have sent a letter saying clearly the threat from al qaeda and affiliate groups has increased an we're not learning. a good time line of the obama's administration evolving statements on libya from saying it wasn't planned to now acknowledging it was an act of terrorism. the most charitable explanation of these resolving statements is information the administration received has changed or wasn't complete or the most uncharitable is t
prime minister benjamin netanyahu to address the united nations general assembly where he's expected to outline how far he will go to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon the speech comes two days after president obama warned iran to time to dispute is not unlimited. let's focus first on the optics as far as how the white house has handled this. the white house is saying what happened in libya was a terrorist attack, secretary of state clinton has walked back specifics as to whether the attack was driven by or carried out by an al qaeda affiliate in northern libya. i guess the question, as a senior political reporter at politico is, is this -- is this -- how do you assess the white house's handling of this in materi terms of the message and the back and forth of susan rice and the president. >> so it's hard right now to kind of move that around a little bit. i think that they could have had huge issues right after the attack, vis-a-vis security, vis-a-vis egypt if mitt romney hadn't gotten in the way. >> right. >> i think that was a big deal he got in the way because that dis
is the better candidate to try to reverse the trend that the united nations government has been on in the past four years. so we'll have to see if he sharpens that attack even more today. but clearly they know they've got some challenges ahead, in new hampshire, of course the battleground state just four electoral votes there. in this tight race four votes could mean the difference between who is president and who is not. they want to fight hard. mitt romney's adopted home state there, if you will. >> right, so he'll be doing that for sure in new hampshire and then in ohio today. okay, thank you very much, ron mott appreciate that. >>> let's get more on the president's surge in the polls. he is increasing his lead in a number of key swing states. he's leading in all nine nbc/"wall street journal"/marist polls taken over the last three weeks. let's talk about what's happening from the gop perspective. because some there are complaining about the polling. they say the pollsters are oversampling democrats. any legitimacy to any of these complaints? >> well, you know, alex one of the things that w
you have a key united nations gathering not to meet with world leaders, including netanyahu at a time of so much concern over iran? >> this president has been in constant contact over four years with world leaders and has been in deep consultation with prime minister netanyahu. our administration has been in deep consultation with defense and intelligence agencies in israel. this president has been focused on strengthening alliances. he's built an unprecedented global effort in terms of sanctions against iran. so this president has led and i think the question, we have an election coming up. this president committed a few things to the american people in 2008. he would restore and rebuild alliances. he would end the war in iraq. he would find and make sure that bin laden was brought to justice. he's done all of those things. by the way, let's talk about governor romney's response during this. you know, in the hours as they attacks became known in libya and the assault on our embassy in egypt, mitt romney throws out some half-baked statement. i think that's one of the reasons -- >> the

a minute. >> go ahead. >> president obama's in new york city for the united nations general assembly. and the clinton global initiative, which we're going to this morning. >> are we really? >> so your boyfriend -- but one of the first orders of business was taping an interview with the women of "the view" alongside the first lady. among the topics, his republican opponents -- >> this guy's not giving serious interviews to anybody -- >> who? >> barack obama, the president of the united states. >> because romney did at a really opportune time. >> but he's going to all of these places, no time for netanyahu, but time for "the view," time for -- >> no time for netanyahu. >> that was good. >> i know. i know. >> wally from "leave it to beaver" was in that. >> was jerry mathers. >> no, that was the beave. >> asked about the newly released tax returns. >> all right. >> take a look. >> governor romney on "60 minutes" was asked, does he think it's fair that he pays a lower tax rate than somebody who is making $50,000 a year? and he said yes. i think it's fair and i also think that's the way yo
to the united nations, susan ryce. he was either not included in some of these briefings, which would be troublesome, or just thrown under the bus when she went out on the sunday shows, explaining that this was not a planned attack, and we now know it was a terrorist attack in libya. >> do you think anything's going to happen with that, with susan rice? do you think she could potentially lose her job or no? >> i don't think she'll lose her job, but i don't think we'll be seeing her much in the upcoming months. >> molly, best and worst? >> i'll give best week to todd akin, the republican senate candidate out in missouri. the deadline passed this week for him to withdraw from the race. he was under heavy, heavy pressure from so many republicans to get out. they say they couldn't possibly win. he stuck it out, he knew they'd come around and they'd give him their money and their support when they didn't have a choice, and sure enough, that's exactly what's happening. you have a lot of republicans magically changing their mind now that they can't get him out of there. and for worst week, i
of this administration in total disarray. you had the united nations ambassador and the presidential press secretary sunday after the event saying things we now know were totally false. there is a report that came out last night i think on abc and fox both that they actually knew 24 hours in advance there was real danger there. >> and the ambassador's diary likewise. >> you have a president who even after his press secretary conceded it was a terrorist attack is still going back to his fantasy version that this is caused by some terribly stupid movie. over two weeks of this. an american ambassador and three other americans dead and collapse of our position in benghazi totally. a large number of cia agents who left town the next day. more than known we had there by the way and the news media says mitt romney's timing was terrible. give me a break. >> he was unable to make the argument. he doesn't present an alternative. >> this is one of my great frustrations with conservatives. i'm not talking about you. you're right. the media hasn't been following this story as much as it could have but if you wer
of the united states as well as being the lead story on every single news broadcast from nbc national to green bay local. that's all it took to puncture the cocoon where the nfl owners live and get them to hear what people have been saying for the last three weeks, there is gravitating very quickly from being a farce to being a tragedy. >> and we understand the referees are going to be back on the field tonight. i guess the question is are they ready? we know how the replacement referees perform. are they ready to turn this around in 24 hours? >> probably not given the fact there are a host of rule changes that have taken place this year. there will be emergency clinics over the next three days to bring the referees up to speed. but the typical nfl referee at his absolute worst on his worst day is better than what we've seen on the field of play over the first three weeks of the nfl season. >> dave, what's the damage if any to the nfl? my view is this league is so popular, people are watching the games anyway. huge audiences for all these games even though the officiating is terrible, do we fo
, it was national news. >> it was the president of the united states. >> yeah, him, too. >> it was bill clinton on your show. "morning joe." and that got the most publicity, by of way, of your entire interview with president clinton, which was very interesting. it was also all manner of politicians from across the board. from not just the president but small-town mayors to people like scott walker and paul ryan. i mean, that's really like turned it into a big story. it's like, wow, scott walker, the same person who doesn't think we need trained union teachers and firefighters really believes that we need trained union officials on the field for the nfl. it turned it into the kind of story that could not be contained by the sports page. >> paul ryan wants these guys to have exactly the same pension that he does not want anybody else to have. >> yeah. and that turns it into all kinds of fodder that really does transcend the sports world. >> i was going to sit back in chicago and say nothing because i like dave, but seriously, you guys politicizing this, it's pathetic. by the way, these refs, you
